Do you feel afraid of drawing in ink? What if you make a mistake? What if the drawing doesn’t turn out the way you wanted? These are all real struggles between experienced and novice artists alike, but there are ways to gain more confidence in drawing. And to acquire that strength, you need to take a plunge!
In this class, you will learn to:
- Draw with more fluidity and expression
- Abandon the dated notion of perfection
- Start a drawing without the fear of starting
- Draw from observation with more ease
In this hands-on class, all you need is a pen and paper. Of course you can bring in other types of ink media. Brush pens, fountain pens with different kinds of nibs, even brush and ink is acceptable. You will draw from a range of reference images provided by your instructor and practice drawing at different time intervals and build your confidence in drawing quickly and without fear.
This class will help you break out of the fear mentality and to embrace imperfection.
Beginners and more advanced students are welcomed. We will engage with a range of drawing exercises that acts as great practice for all stages.
